Greetings Dear Friend,

Welcome to MileStone Academy's April 2022 Newsletter!

“Educate students with learning challenges, so they become confident, productive twenty-first-century learners.” - MileStone Academy's Vision Statement.

Since 2015, this vision has guided us in creating an environment where students become confident in their learning abilities. To ensure they are ready for life after high school, we not only teach academic courses, we coach our students on how to be resilient, responsible, and perseverant. We are presented with opportunities to demonstrate these critical life skills daily.

Students make decisions every day - what to wear to school, complete an assignment on time, and what to bring for lunch. These decisions do not have life-altering consequences, but others they make can alter their life path forever. By helping them make good decisions with the small stuff, we hope they will think about the consequences of all their choices and understand they are responsible for them. RESPONSIBILITY.

April’s newsletter will share the most recent MileStone Happenings and provide you with important educational tips and resources.

Thank you staying connected with MileStone Academy.

Warmest Regards,
Michele Hewitt-Webster
Executive Director/Founder/Board Member

Community Outreach
Donate, Take Action, Stay Informed
MileStone Academy supports the efforts of our local Ukrainian Educational and Cultural Center. Many of us are looking to find ways to do our part in helping Ukrainian citizens right now. While we might not have the power to enforce sanctions or freeze Russia’s foreign assets, there are still some impactful things we can do. Here are three recommendations from Global Citizen to help make a difference.
This month's newsletter has been sponsored by Michele Bee Photography.
